Paul Charchian's Top Drops - Week 4

Christine Michael – At some point, Christine Michael may get some carries, but it doesn't appear to be likely to happen any time soon.

Andre Johnson – Andre Johnson has seen his targets drop from 10 to 7 to 1.  And, he dropped his one pass. Last week's usage is very telling.  With Chuck Pagano's job (potentially) on the line, he didn't want Johnson on the field. He's still got a chance of producing, but he's clearly lost the confidence of his coaches and quarterback.

Duke Johnson – I keep thinking that Duke Johnson should be bigger part of the Browns offense, but it hasn't happened yet.  He'll get some further opportunities through the air, but I haven't seen anything to suggest that he's going to be a regular fantasy producer.

Teddy Bridgewater – There's a confluence of things happening that make Teddy Bridgewater droppable. First, he hasn't played particularly well. Second, he continues to show very statistical little upside—I don't see him throwing for 300 and 3 in (m)any games.  Third, the next two weeks he's got Denver and a bye, so you're not going to start him for three weeks, at the earliest.

Brian Quick – The guys in the LeagueSafe office adore Brian Quick, and think I'm crazy to give up on him. But, at some point, you've got to look at three straight healthy scratches and wonder why he can't start over Chris Givens, Steadman Bailey, and even Bradley Marquez.

Roddy White – Roddy White's one target in the past two games is deeply troubling (although, I'll mention that he was targeted a few times last week, but they came back due to penalties). Julio Jones is absorbing so many passes that White just isn't getting used. Add in 6-8 targets from slot receiver Leonard Hankerson, and there just aren't enough balls left to go around. His snap count remains high, so he's going to have some games with some impact.

Nick Foles – If you can't light up the horrible Steelers secondary (at home, no less), hang 'em up.

Joique Bell – I know Joique Bell scored a touchdown last week, and he will probably continue to get goal line use. But still, he's looked horrible, with zero moves or speed.  He's averaging a dismal 1.1 yards per carry, and at some point, the winless Lions will need to start putting their best players on the field.  I might roster Zach Zenner before Bell, in the hope that a desperate coaching staff makes a change.
